    Getty Josh McDaniels sitting with Julian Edelman and Tom Brady. Not long ago, the Las Vegas Raiders‘ season looked over after a crushing home loss to the Indianapolis Colts. The focus of the fan base switched to the draft and there was talk of the team embracing a full rebuild. What a difference three weeks make. The team has won three in a row and now there’s talk of them getting into the playoff race. At 5-7, the Raiders have an uphill battle. They have to at least surpass three teams to earn the seventh seed in the AFC and make the playoffs. With five games left, anything can happen but one thing is for sure: the Raiders need to win the rest of their games to have a real chance. Former New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman spent years getting coached by Josh McDaniels and he believes his former coach can get the Raiders into the playoff this season. He explained how they can make it happen. “The Raiders can make the playoffs,” Edelman said. “They...

But will a new head coach make some major roster changes? It was a different kind of year for the Las Vegas Raiders. For only the second time since 2003 and the first time since ‘16, the Silver and Black were in the NFL playoffs. But what the team and franchise endured to get there was difficult in many ways. Head coach Jon Gruden resigned after five games due to scandal. There were off-the-field issues when it came to a pair of 2020 first-round picks in wide receiver Henry Ruggs III and cornerback Damon Arnette. And neither are in the league at the moment. After a 3-0 start, the Raiders slumped to...
    The most important position in professional sports becomes even more important in the postseason. That much was clear on wild-card weekend, where the team with the best quarterback wound up advancing to next week’s final eight in just about every instance. Four were gigantic mismatches — Tampa Bay and Tom Brady against Philaelphia and Jalen Hurts; Josh Allen and Buffalo against Mac Jones of New England, Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City against Ben Roethlisberger and Pittsburgh and the Rams and Matthew Stafford against Kyler Murray and Arizona. Yes, their supporting casts were all superior, but Brady, Allen and Mahomes all looked like quarterbacks who had been there and done that in mid-January. Stafford got off to a big lead and won his first playoff game, but we’ll wait and see. Hurts and Jones showed their lack of experience, and Roethlisberger was simply hanging on in terms of being a downfield passer. Where Murray is concerned, it gets more complicated based on their late-season fade and the possibility that he’s more of a gimmick than a championship-level...
    The Las Vegas Raiders can almost taste the AFC playoffs, but have one thing left to do first. After beating the Indianapolis Colts on the road by a field goal in Week 17, the Las Vegas Raiders improved to 9-7 on the year and are this close to making the AFC playoffs. Given that the Raiders have made the playoffs just once since the 2002 campaign that saw them lose the Super Bowl to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, qualifying for the postseason would be a massive deal for the Silver and Black. For a team that saw its head coach resign weeks into the season, anybody who is not a fan of a rival AFC West team should be pulling for these Raiders. So what do the Raiders have to do to make the playoffs? It is really simple: Beat LA.Las Vegas Raiders made the AFC playoffs by beating the Los Angeles ChargersThe simplest way for the Raiders to make the AFC playoffs as one of three Wild Card teams is to beat the division rival Los Angeles Chargers in Las Vegas....
    Despite an awful loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, the Steelers still have a chance to make the playoffs, even though it’s slim. The Steelers fell at the hands of the Chiefs in Week 16, 36-10. Frankly, it wasn’t even that close, as the Steelers failed to score in the first half and at what time were down 23-0. With the loss, Pittsburgh fell to 7-7-1 on the year. That tie came against the then-winless Detroit Lions. Despite the Steelers’ brutal offensive play-calling, Swiss cheese defense and the aging abilities of Ben Roethlisberger at quarterback, Pittsburgh still has a chance to make the playoffs. Here’s exactly what has to happen. How the Steelers can still make the playoffsThe Steelers can make the postseason if the following events transpire exactly as described: Steelers win out The Dolphins lose one of their final three games Both the Chargers and Raiders split their final two games That’s easier said than done, but with those three outcomes, the Steelers will slide into the seventh and final playoff seed in the AFC.

    After pulling off a last-second win over the Cleveland Browns on Monday, the Las Vegas Raiders have paths to the playoffs. The Las Vegas Raiders playoff chances looked rather slim recently. They were blown out by the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14, then they appeared to be on the verge of losing to the shorthanded Cleveland Browns on Monday night. But, they were saved by an end of game drive orchestrated by quarterback Derek Carr, setting up the game-winning field goal by Daniel Carlson to clinch the 16-14 victory over Cleveland. After this win, the Raiders are still alive and well in the AFC playoff picture. Here is how the Raiders can clinch a postseason berth.How can Raiders clinch a playoff berth after win over Browns?Given that there are only three teams eliminated from playoff contention in the AFC, there are still 13 teams vying for the seven berths. That means the Raiders are in for a rather hectic final three weeks of the 2021 season. Thanks to the New York Times’ playoff prediction simulator, you can play around with...

(Photo by Logan Whitton/Getty Images) If the Las Vegas Raiders are ready to move on from Derek Carr, they’ll need to find an adequate replacement. Here are three quarterbacks they should consider.  Things aren’t going well for the Las Vegas Raiders at the moment and it looks like things might need to change sooner rather than later. If the Raiders are looking to make a drastic move that might give them a fresh start, parting ways with 30-year-old Derek Carr could help do just that. It’s worth noting that taking a move like moving on from an experienced quarterback like Carr can be risky. While there have been some low moments, Carr has been a solid quarterback for the Raiders throughout his career and he’s currently averaging over 300 passing yards per game for the Raiders...

    THE Las Vegas Raiders organization has come under fire for their 'inappropriate' social media post following Derek Chauvin's conviction. Chauvin was found guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and manslaughter in his trial regarding the death of George Floyd and could face up to 40 years in prison as a result. ????

    The Las Vegas Raiders have no plans to delete an insane tweet sent after Derek Chauvin’s conviction. Following Chauvin being convicted on two murder charges and a manslaughter charge for the death of George Floyd, the Raiders thought it was a great idea to tweet “I Can Breathe.” (RELATED: Derek Chauvin Found Guilty Of Murder In Death Of George Floyd) BREAKING: The jury finds former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty on all counts in the murder of George Floyd: 2nd degree intentional murder, 3rd degree murder, and 2nd degree manslaughter pic.twitter.com/FW5XDAZwob — Daily Caller (@DailyCaller) April 20, 2021 As of right now, the tweet has been quote tweeted nearly 80,000 times, and the reactions are just as brutal as you’d expect. pic.twitter.com/eeWbMYHK3U — Las Vegas Raiders (@Raiders) April 20, 2021 In case you thought the tweet was coming down, it’s not.

    Getty Derek Carr with Patrick Mahomes. While the Las Vegas Raiders have struggled to compete in the AFC West over the last few years, they proved last season that they weren’t going to be pushed around anymore. The Kansas City Chiefs have dominated the team for a while now but Las Vegas ended up being the only team in the NFL to beat them when Patrick Mahomes started in the regular season. Due to that win in Arrowhead, the rivalry between the two teams is as heated as ever. One of the biggest knocks on Derek Carr over his career is that he couldn’t win in Kansas City. Prior to last season, he was 0-6 at Arrowhead Stadium. Now that he finally got a win under his belt, he’s feeling a bit more comfortable throwing some shade. The quarterback was recently asked to be a guest speaker at ChurchLV in Las Vegas. Even at church, he took the opportunity to troll a Chiefs fan. #mood pic.twitter.com/MLmRhzKD2o — Raider Cody (@RaiderCody) April 11, 2021 Carr is obviously messing...

The Wales RU icon makes his long awaited rugby league debut as West Wales Raiders take on Widnes in the Challenge Cup today. 2 West Wales Raiders coach Aaron Wood believes Gavin Henson can help silence the keyboard warriorsCredit: WEST WALES RAIDERS The prospect of a 39-year-old joining a club that conceded 100 points or more on seven occasions in three seasons has raised the eyebrows of some and laughter from the others. But coach Aaron Wood has already seen enough to know Henson - joined by former England man Rangi Chase - may have those turning off their laptops. He said: “Gavin will surprise a lot of people at how he adapts. He’ll be one of the easiest converters to rugby league. “When you see him running, you wouldn’t think he’s 39 – he looks about 25! “Gavin’s really humble. He’s come as a student of the game, he wants to know every little detail. He’s always...
    Darren Waller was riding an exercise bike getting warmed up for the second half of the last game played in Oakland when a couple of Raiders legends approached. It was Tim Brown and Marcus Allen, telling Waller to keep up the good work. “I don’t know if they know how much it meant to me right then,” Waller said Thursday in a video conference. “To even be mentioned with (Brown) is pretty crazy.” Waller’s meteoric rise has him on the short list along with Travis Kelce and George Kittle as the best tight ends in the NFL. Brown took it even further as he pondered seeing his franchise record of 104 receptions fall by the wayside should Waller catch seven passes Sunday against the Denver Broncos. “I think he’s still wet behind the ears, man,” Brown said in a phone interview this week. “I don’t think he understands how dominant he is. I think once he does, he’s going to be one of the best to ever play this game. Without a doubt.” The Raiders...
    If the Raiders want to end their first season in Las Vegas with a playoff berth, they should know their work is cut out for them. At 7-6 going into Week 15’s home game vs the Chargers, the Raiders are in the current No. 9 position in the AFC, a game behind the No. 7 Dolphins (8-5) and No. 8 Ravens (8-5). Last season, the Raiders were still alive in the AFC wild-card race until Week 17, but their 7-9 final record wasn’t good enough to get the second wild card. Now that the NFL has expanded to a seventh team in each conference, they have extra life. With only three games left, here’s a look at the Raiders’ three different, narrow paths to the playoffs behind the AFC West champion Chiefs: MORE: NFL’s expanded playoffs, explained Raiders go 3-0 to finish 10-6 Jon Gruden’s team needs to do this to feel just OK about its chances.

    With a 6-6 record going into Week 14’s Thursday night game against the Rams in Los Angeles, the Patriots are alive in the NFL playoff picture. New England, however, still has the odds stacked against it to make the NFL playoffs for an 18th consecutive season. The Patriots currently are No. 10 in the conference with their .500 record. Before thinking about catching either the No. 6 Dolphins (8-4) or No. 7 Colts (8-4) for one of the final two AFC wild-card spots, they also need to jump both the No. 8 Raiders (7-5) and No. 9 Ravens (7-5). The bad news is two games are a lot of ground to make up in only four weeks. The good news is the Patriots already have the right kind of wins that can help them extend their postseason streak with Bill Belichick and without Tom Brady. Here’s a look at New England’s schedule and resume and what help it will need to get into the playoffs: MORE: Full betting guide for Patriots vs. Rams Can the Patriots make the playoffs? The NFC...

    Baker Mayfield needs to step his game up. Just when it looked like Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns had turned a corner and established themselves as legit playoff contenders, and Odell Beckham Jr. injury followed by a matchup in sloppy, traditional November in Ohio weather against the Las Vegas Raiders made them look completely inept on that side of the ball. The Browns mustered just six points in a home loss to the Raiders, as Mayfield and the passing game were unable to get chunk plays down the field. Simply put, he can’t play like that routinely and expect to break the Browns’ streak of consecutive seasons without postseason football.

    We’ll have a better idea Sunday if the Raiders’ hopes of being on the playoff fringe are legitimate or just another cruel joke played upon a tortured but loyal fan base. Same goes for the host Cleveland Browns. The Browns have had 12 consecutive losing seasons, and last made the playoffs in 2002 — the same year the Raiders won the AFC championship — losing their wild card game after going 9-7. Cleveland went 10-6 in 2007 and still didn’t make the playoffs. So here sit the Browns at 5-2 under rookie head coach Kevin Stefanski, just three years removed from the 0-16 Hue Jackson and having fired last year’s coach Freddie Kitchens after one 6-10 season.. Is it real or a mirage? Upon closer inspection, Cleveland has beaten just one team with a winning record, defeating Indianapolis (currently 4-2). When Cleveland played the top two teams in the AFC North, Baltimore (5-1) and Pittsburgh (6-0), they lost by a combined score of 76-13. The Browns own a pair of wins over Cincinnati (1-5-1) as...
    The Raiders have been swatted on the nose with a rolled up newspaper. We’ll see what kind of dog they’ll be in the fight Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Allegiant Stadium. Anyone else think it was a little unusual that instead of having their game delayed because of COVID-19 concerns, as has happened in with other teams, the Raiders instead will play on the same day more than four hours earlier? Raiders fans love a good conspiracy, but good luck trying to prove it this time. After accruing more than $500,000 in team and individual fines stemming from violations regarding coronavirus protocols, the Raiders didn’t exactly get the beneift of the doubt when their entire offensive line and safety Johnathan Abram went on the COVID-19 reserve list this week. Tackle Trent Brown, who tested positive for the virus, reportedly without symptoms, won’t play. Neither will Abram, who was in contact with Brown Tuesday and couldn’t get in five days of negative tests during his quarantine period before kickoff. Four other linemen — left...

    The Raiders are an afterthought in Kansas City, and for good reason. As quarterback Derek Carr noted with candor this week, it takes two to make a rivalry and the Raiders haven’t held up their end, especially at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs are coming off a Super Bowl championship, are 4-0 and destined for another AFC West title. The Raiders have lost two straight, are 2-2, and their season could go either way with a long list of injuries and a leaky defense. Under coach Andy Reid, the Chiefs are 10-2 against the Raiders and 6-0 at Arrowhead Stadium since 2013, outscoring their alleged rival 176-70 in Kansas City. Since his return to coaching, Jon Gruden is 0-4 against the Chiefs, coming within 40-33 the first time they played but outscored 103-20 in the last three games. So it’s no wonder the Raiders are 12-point underdogs, a whopping margin by NFL standards and the second biggest point spread this week behind Cincinnati (plus 13 1/2) against Baltimore. But Chiefs players have a lot on their...

The new season brings a new city, a new stadium, and the same hopes and dreams for head coach Jon Gruden and the Las Vegas Raiders. The team finished a disappointing 7-9 in the 2019 season, and certainly finished in a lackluster fashion, losing five of its’ final six contests after starting the season 6-4.

    The Raiders have a history of trying to wring one last big year out of established stars, and the signing of tight end Jason Witten on the first day of free agency is no different. A word of advice: if all goes according to plan, Witten’s contributions will be more intangible than statistical. From a fantasy perspective, other than Witten getting a few touchdowns in the red zone, it’s better to stick with the plan to draft Darren Waller. Witten, 38, seems to understand where he’s at in his career based on his expansive Zoom conference with reporters Monday. “I think when you get to this age, it’s all about the fit and the role and it made a lot of sense for me,” Witten said. Other than his rookie year with the Dallas Cowboys in 2003 and his temporary retirement to join the ESPN Monday Night Football booth in 2018, Witten has been like a metronome, catching no fewer than 63 passes 15 times with a high of 110 in 2012. He’s not a deep threat, never having averaged...
    If the career arc of Henry Ruggs III is anything like that of Josh Jacobs, we’re about six weeks away from finding out if the Raiders pulled a fast one with their second straight first-round selection out of Alabama. Jacobs, the second of three first-round picks in 2019, looked the part of a feature back in a season-opening win over the Denver Broncos with 23 carries for 85 yards. He went on to rush for 1,150 yards despite missing the last two games due to a broken shoulder sustained in Week 7. Ruggs, taken with the 12th pick of the first round, will be given every chance in a condensed training camp to be a Week 1 factor when the Raiders visit the Carolina Panthers to open the 2020 season on Sept. 13. During his first week on the job, general manager Mike Mayock scouted Jacobs personally before the NCAA championship game against Clemson and immediately informed Jon Gruden he’d just seen one of their first-round draft picks. Never mind that Jacobs carried the ball just 120 times for 650...
    Jadeveon Clowney, Seattle Seahawks. (Photo by Ralph Freso/Getty Images) Jadeveon Clowney remains the biggest name on the NFL free agent market. Could Las Vegas be an option? Leave it to Jon Gruden and Mark Davis to pick out the best remaining free agent as a way to upgrade their roster this late into the process. The Raiders defensive line showed promise last year, and plucking Jadeveon Clowney, who’s single-handedly able to change the course of a game, from the free agent market is an option they shouldn’t ignore. To this point, Clowney hasn’t received the offer he covets, as he’s stuck considering short-term lucrative deals. The Raiders are unlikely to provide him with his asking price, at least not yet, but Cecil Lammey reports the Raiders have extended an offer to the former No. 1 pick.Could the Las Vegas Raiders sign Jadeveon Clowney?Team sources tell me #Raiders have extended an offer to Jadeveon Clowney. 2 or 3 other teams have better offers.
